Successful people build each other up, they motivate, inspire and push each other. Unsuccessful people just hate, blame and complain.    Flowers only bloom when they are ready. People are the same way. You cannot rush or force them open, just because you think it's time. Be patient. - Timber Hawkeye    We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them. - Albert Einstein    Success is to be measured, not so much by the position that one has reached in life, as by the obstacles that one has overcome while trying to succeed. - Bookert T. Washington    Be solution driven. Treat the disease, not the symptoms by targeting the source of the problem or issue.    In the confrontation between the stream and the rock, the stream always wins... not through strength, but through persistence. - Buddha    Are you interested in changing, or are you committed to change?

Initiate, Address & Sustaining Change

Motivation for Change Sustainability

There is an age old Chinese adage that states… The longest and most difficult journey starts with taking the first step!

However, this merely is only one side of the coin. Yes, it is very true, that you have to take that all important first step, but then… you have to keep walking!

Initiating or starting a change project, although a very difficult decision to make and execute, is actually the easy part of your intended change project… what is much more difficult, is to keep your change project going – despite possible adversities – until intended or desired change outcomes are achieved successfully.

Freedom of Choice

The moment we start to disregard or ignore the principle “Freedom of Choice“, we frequently falls into the facilitation trap and conduct facilitation activities, firmly based on an underlying believe that “I ALWAYS KNOW THE BEST“, either consciously or sub-consciously. Therefore, the person or persons are obliged to follow my advice or – at least – accept my “expert” point of view. This facilitation trap normally starts of innocently enough, but nevertheless, is quite destructive and manipulative in its final outcome.
